Kayaking in Virginia Beach is a Learning experience!
There is so much to learn while kayaking in Virginia Beach from the ecosystem, history to the details of the wildlife around you! We have delicate tidal salt marsh ecosystems held together by oysters beneath the surface that filter the water to maintain the balance. Bald eagles reside in the trees that can live to be 20 years old. The female bald eagles are actually larger than the males! Then there are the dolphins! Dolphins are incredibly intelligent and curious creatures. Dolphins can also live to 20 years old. They are very social and family oriented often sticking together for life! Dolphins are protected here so it is illegal to pursue, harass, touch or feed them. Each dolphin has its own unique voice that the other dolphins can recognize. Dolphins use echolocation (just like bats) to make notes on their surroundings and hunt prey. Hearing is their greatest sense by far. When you book a guided kayak dolphin tour with Gokayak we are passionate about the details around us and we love to give you fun facts about your surroundings. Kayaking in Virginia Beach with Gokayak is a good way to learn a lot while making epic lifetime memories with your family. Dolphin watching and bird watching while kayaking through Rudee inlet is a good way to spend some time while vacationing in Virginia Beach.
Kayak dolphin Tours in Virginia Beach
Living in Virginia Beach I meet people from all over the world that come here to visit. Often times they are coming from a place without an ocean. In the warm months here the dolphins are plentiful and very active most of the time. Vacation is a special time for people to take a break from their busy schedule and regular routine. When someone comes to Virginia Beach and signs up for a kayak tour with me my goal is to make lifetime memories with them. I want them to look back on their vacation years later and say "remember that time we went kayaking with dolphins in virginia beach?!" Or "remember that guy Bryan that took us kayaking and showed us around the inlet?!" The feeling I get to watch someone making memories with their family on the water is beyond words. It is truly an honor. I had a couple from Indiana I recall from last summer that I took out at sunrise. We paddled through the inlet and out into the ocean in beautifully calm conditions. Large groups of dolphins with their babies surrounded us within feet of our kayaks and put on a show for about an hour. Although I see dolphins alot this was exceptional! This couple was blown away and speechless. All they could do was watch and gasp as the dolphins swam and broke the surface of the water right next to us. They told me they have never had an experience like that and reminded me how fortunate I was to live in such a beautiful place. I felt so happy knowing that we had just made wonderful lifetime vacation memories together and I had added something special to their lives. Dolphins are truly amazing creatures and the chance to see them up close is mesmerizing. Being out in nature on the water with your family is an epic memory in Virginia Beach no matter what. It's not everyday you go kayaking in Virginia Beach with your family!
